20 October 2015, 06:59

Awka - The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Anambra chapter, has rejected the election petitions tribunal judgments involving their candidates in the last general elections in the state.

Tony Ifeanya, APGA’s Secretary in the state, said at a news conference in Awka on Monday that the party would contest the judgments at the Appeal Court.

He said that the party was dissatisfied with the tribunal judgments.

"We are surprised that the prayers of all our candidates at the tribunal were not granted on mere technical grounds."

Ifeanya claimed that the party won all the National Assembly elections on March 28, adding that it had resolved to seek redress at the Appeal Court.

"We are proceeding to the appellate court to defend the mandate given to us by the people with the confidence that the Nigerian judicial system can still protect us."

"We cannot reconcile the outcome of the National Assembly elections with the 27 out of the30 state constituency seats in the house of assembly won by APGA."

"We, therefore, condemn the spurious judgments delivered by the National Assembly Elections Petitions Tribunal."

"Our quest for justice remains on course and our passion towards redressing the travesty of justice meted out to Anambra people is ever resolute,’’ he said.

The media reports that apart from Mr Dozie Nwankwo who won his tribunal case against PDP’s Dr Nnamdi Eze for Anaocha /Dunukofia /Njikoka Federal Constituency, other candidates of APGA including Chief Victor Umeh, who contested Anambra Central Senatorial District lost.
